Where's the bed?

My brother-in-law sent me a great link from Treehugger (via Contemporist) to a brilliant way to hide a bed away when dealing with a small space. Point Architecture (based in Torino, Italy) hid a bed in a drawer-like space in the living room, creating sleeping quarters for the owners so their children could have the only bedroom in the apartment. This look so much easier to deal with than a Murphy bed.

Ashe + Leandro again

It's been about 3 looong years since I blogged about the architecture and interior design firm of Ashe + Leandro. Their spaces were energizing and eclectic back then and they sure haven't deviated from their funky style that I love since. To my delight, I found a bunch of new projects on their site - here are some of my favourite rooms.

Seedling

A  farm house nestled in the shadow of the old barn. Self contained and small. Bijou and beautiful. An apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Is this wee wonder going to grow up to be a big bold barn over the centuries? Perhaps not. Perhaps that is better. By Jarmund/Vigsnæs AS Arkitekter MNAL.

Taking flight

Beautiful interiors come to life through the lens of Swedish photographer Idha Lindhag. Vignettes vibrate with the loveliness of ordinary everyday beauty. It's almost like I want to take flight like a bird breaking free from the light .... oh bad prose! Good photos though ;)

Monday's pets on furniture (and something special)

If you'd like to send me photos to include in next week's "pets on furniture" post, please ensure your photos follow my basic rules: First, the pet must be on a piece of furniture. And said piece of furniture must be clearly visible in the photo, so it takes center stage rather than your pet. Think of it more of a photo of a great piece of furniture that you want to show off...and your pet happens to be sitting on it. And second, the photo must be of decent quality. If it's dark or fuzzy (from a camera phone) then it may not make the cut. Thanks! (Photos, your name, location and a brief description can be sent to desiretoinspirekim@hotmail.com and PLEASE don't send closeups of your pet!)

This is my pug Koko celebrating her 12th birthday on Valentine’s Day by hanging out on the antique bed I picked up at an estate sale. The vintage quilt is also an estate sale find.
